Bringhurst is fantastic. Writing about his writing is daunting, but the Barry Lopez quote on the backcover is spot-on. His typographic book is worth reading. His essays, ostensibly on this-and-that, are full of gifts and surprises whether you are a curious soul or a mystified worker bee. This book is a great place to start.

I enjoyed these essays by Robert Bringhurst. Each essay a contemplative practice unto itself. Highly recommended for anyone interested in language and the primary need for expression that all creatures share.

“Poetry is language used with an awareness of the poverty of language…. gauge…. Poetry remembers that language is shaped air; it remembers ashes to ashes, dust to dust, wind to wind; it knows we don’t own what we know. It knows the world is, after all, unnameable, so it listens hard before it speaks, and wraps that listening into the linguistic act.’ “

Robert Bringhurst is one of the best writers ever, in my opinion. The Elements of Typographic Style is a terrific read, even if you care nothing for typography or book design (beware, you may after reading it).

Bringhurst is a polymath to be envied. He writes about language, poetry, typography, art, translation, Native American culture, nature and much more with erudition, passion, and elan.

Robert Bringhurst writes delicious sentences about language, life, and culture. This is a book I treasure and read and reread.
